Early Morning Session

I asked my mother if she would drop me at school early so I could attend the cricket nets session with Mr Lamb. I really love going to this as it wakes me up before the start of the school day. I have improved my batting and bowling since I have been going.


Registration and Chapel

After registration in my form room, I went to chapel where we had hymn practice with Mr Lyddon. We sang Jerusalem which is one of the school’s most popular hymns and I did a reading which I had help with on the tricky names. Then after saying some prayers we went to our first lesson. I really like that the whole school is together at the start of a busy day.

8:50am - 12.30pm

Morning lessons

My first lesson was English and I was working hard on a project about a famous painting which I had to write a descriptive piece on and create a mood board of. It was great fun researching everything about the artist and his life. Next we had Maths and we constructed the nets of shapes with card. Before break, we had Science in which we dissected a lamb’s heart. In this we learnt all about the circulatory system, which was very interesting. I loved getting my hands in to feel the cardiac muscle and identify the valves!

10.20am - 10.50am


At break I built a dam in the stream with my friends. The next two lessons were French and Geography. In these, we studied Normandy for our upcoming school trip there and case studies for our topic on natural disasters.

12.30pm - 1.30pm


Next it was lunch and we ate sausages and mash with peas. I had apple crumble for pudding. It was very good! The sausage meat came from the pigs on our own farm.

1.30pm - 2.20pm


This is my favourite time of the day! Today we had Hockey and we worked on tackling. The sessions are really fun but we work hard. I am really looking forward to our match on Wednesday afternoon!

2.20pm - 5.00pm

Afternoon lessons

After games, we had a Drama rehearsal where we were working hard on our Shakespeare production of Hamlet. I had a violin lesson during little tea because I had to prepare for the concert. My last three lessons were: Art, where we were studying Monet’s style and creating impressionist pieces; History, in which we were learning about various breakthroughs in medical history, and Religious Studies where we discussed arguments for and against the existence of God, which was challenging but also very interesting.

3.10pm - 3.30pm

Little Tea

We had chocolate cake – my favourite! After eating in the dining hall I went outside and played ball with Mrs Moore’s dog!

5.00pm - 5.50pm


There is lots of choice when choosing what to do in club time. I had swimming today. Our coach is amazing and he is trying to get me a quicker time when racing in Butterfly. I have a gala in a couple of weeks so I am pleased with how I swam today.


Home time

I have the option of staying on to do clubs and I could even stay overnight if I needed or wanted to. I do a couple of clubs in the week but today I have chosen to go home and get some rest before another busy day tomorrow. I got the minibus back home and I sat with my friends and enjoyed singing along to some of our favourite music!
